Today the stigma of alcoholism and drug abuse keeps many substance abusers from seeking treatment. Many also believe that there is no solution to this grave disease. It is a physical, emotional, social and spiritual problem.
Dr. David Sequeira is best suited to treat these patients as he has worked with substance abusers for 24 years, and he is also trained to take care of their spiritual problems.
He not only treats the substance abuser but also the co-dependent and the whole family. He encourages the abuser to attend AA, CA, and NA meetings; and the co-dependents need to attend Alanon and the children Alateen. He, however, does not detoxify the patient.
He wrote his doctoral dissertation on "How machismo is related to alcoholism among the Hispanics".
